According to ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson, the Oakland Raiders will be without cornerback Ronald Bartell for several weeks after he suffered a broken shoulder blade during Monday night’s loss to the Chargers.
“Bartell has a broken left shoulder blade. Because no surgery is needed, his recovery time could be less than six weeks. There is hope he could be back in four weeks. Bartell is meeting with a specialist to get more information,” Williamson reported.
This is a tough break for the Raiders. They brought in Bartell as a free agent to be their number one corner.

He did it in the Super Bowl two years ago while with Green Bay, helping the Packers secondary hold on after injuries put Charles Woodson and Sam Shields on the sidelines.
Now he's being asked to do the same for the Raiders - albeit on a significantly smaller stage.

He is out indefinitely.Fantasy Spin:Ford's absence should open the door for Rod Streater to play a larger role in the Oakland passing attack.

I already covered this game, but I recently learned something about NFL history.On September 10, 1978, the Raiders won a game against the Chargers in the most amazing manner-- an offensive fumble recovery for a touchdown.Even back then, NFL rules limited forward passes to once per play and only from behind the line of scrimmage. If the ball hit the ground, it was considered incomplete...
